Geometry in Secondary Schools.
Meserve, Bruce E.
The author describes a way of teaching a one-year geometry course which includes plane geometry, solid geometry, coordinate methods of proof, and vector methods of proof. His method is based upon encouraging students to use the properties of geometric figures that they already accept without formal proof. He employs paper folding extensively to arrive at many of the plane geometric concepts. (CT)
